It is our immense pleasure to announce the beginning of a new PCL Code Sprint sponsored by Urban Robotics: PCL-URCS!
PCL Code Sprints are intended to rapidly advance the capabilities of the Point Cloud Library in a certain area/subject by offering stipends to talented student developers and pairing them with knowledgeable mentors for several months of accelerated software development. These sprints have been inspired by the Google Summer Of Code (GSOC) initiative, and we will be following the same basic model. Projects will run for an initial period of 3 months with the same structure and performance evaluations as the GSOC program, and all of the code produced will be open source.
For this winter's PCL-Urban Robotics Code Sprint, we have identified the following important area for further development in PCL, and we are therefore searching for outstanding candidates (and mentors) to work on the following project:
- Out-of-core octree integration: integrate and extend Urban Robotics's highly scalable, spatially searchable and colorized 3D octree-based point cloud format in PCL, to efficiently support the visualization and processing…
